    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Norman Plummer scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half to lead Dayton to a 73-65 victory over Temple on Wednesday night.

    Brian Roberts added 15 points and Charles Little had 16 rebounds for the Flyers (17-11, 7-8 Atlantic 10), who snapped a three-game losing streak and earned just their second road win of the season.

    Mark Tyndale scored 19 points and Dionte Christmas 18 for the Owls (12-16, 6-9), who have lost four of five.

    Roberts scored 13 points and Dayton overcame 35-percent shooting to take a 31-21 halftime lead. Temple did not make a field goal the first 6 1/2 minutes, and was slowed by 30-percent shooting and 10 turnovers in the first half.

    The Flyers took their biggest lead at 48-31 on a basket by Roberts with 11:45 remaining.

    The Owls went on a 10-2 run that cut their deficit to 64-58 with 1:24 left, but Dayton made 10 straight free throws in the final minute, including four by Plummer, to seal the win.
